Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package.

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria on at least one occasion and include:

  • identifying activities carried out in a rail yard or siding
  • identifying job hazards and possible safety events and taking required action to minimise, control or eliminate identified hazards
  • identifying layout, main features and equipment in a rail yard or siding
  • interpreting and following operational instructions.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include knowledge of:

  • above and below ground services
  • features of track, layout and geometry
  • overhead and/or electrical infrastructure
  • primary rail activities and safety management systems
  • rail, rail track vehicles and rolling stock
  • relevant communications systems and procedures
  • relevant rail danger zones
  • relevant sections of applicable state/territory legislated rail safety requirements, codes of practice and/or guidelines
  • track components and layout
  • track, trackside equipment and yard structure terminology.

Assessment Conditions

As a minimum, assessors must satisfy applicable regulatory requirements, which include requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

As a minimum, assessment must satisfy applicable regulatory requirements, which include requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must occur in workplace operational situations or, where this is not available, in simulated workplace operational situations that replicate rail workplace conditions.

Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.

Resources for assessment may include:

  • a range of relevant exercises, case studies and/or simulations
  • relevant and appropriate materials, tools, equipment and personal protective equipment currently used in industry
  • applicable documentation including workplace procedures, regulations, codes of practice and operation manuals
